.net – ASP.NET Web Application – compiling .cs files – Education Career Blog

I guess I have been using the Web Site model ever since .NET 2.0 and never looked back.
Now I’m using the Web Application mode on a few projects. How do you tell the compiler to compile .cs files in the project? I assume you can do this since the newer-MVC projects do it for the Controllers.

I have a class, RestRouteHandler, that implements the IRouteHandler interface but because I think the .cs file is not being compiled I can’t use it in my Global.asax.


Right-click the .cs file in the Solution Explorer and click Properties. Set the “Build Action” to compile.


use the “Build” menu in Visual Studio
